jfi tfiaiiy-Tale Evening 

Sydney Leavens '98 

Once upon a time it was June 4th, 1998 and 
seniors cast away their rags and dressed for the 
ball. At 8:00 on that Thursday night they arrived 
with their dates at the Marriot in style. While 
horse-drawn carriages were few and far between, 
limos added glamour to the evening for many. On 
the dance floor seniors danced to a variety of types 
of music, from rap to ska to slow and romantic. If 
they tired of dancing the invitees could sip carbon- 
ated beverages in the lobby and compliment each 
other on their magnificent evening wear. When the 
clock struck 12:00, they fled the Marriot like 
Cinderella fled the ball, but the fairy tale evening 
did not end there. Seniors and their dates could 
then board buses to Tent City, where, for a mere 
$20.00, they could dance the rest of the evening 
away under the tent flaps and hold conversations 
under starry skies.

Pi Magical Evening 

Sydney Leavens '98 

On Wednesday, June 9, only hours after the 
award ceremony, seniors gathered at BayPath College to 
celebrate their upcoming graduation and the golden 
years they had spent at LHS. Each senior received a 
photo album with the Lancer logo on the cover — a must 
for prom pictures. As seniors dined on chicken, steak or 
pasta, class secretary Leah Halsey publicly thanked Dr. 
Murphy for his years of support of the class as principal. 
Vice President Justine Kurland gave a brief speech 
thanking the advisors and presented them with tokens of 
appreciation. Vice President Dave Patterson then 
presented the class superlatives. 

The highlight of the evening, of course, was the 
slide show, which was followed by the presentation of 
I he yearbook and its dedication to Mr. Goodwin. Senior 
issues ol tin- let Jotter and Impressions were also made 
available as seniors departed.

The Senior trip to High Meadows is always a special 
one, and this year's was no different. While the weather was far 
from perfect - seniors sported sweatshirts rather than tanning oi 
— the trip allowed seniors a chance to bond one last time before 
Sunday's graduation. On Thursday, June 10th at 4:00 P.M., 
seniors boarded buses tor the half hour ride. Once at High 
Meadows, they played Softball, basketball and ultimate Frisbee, 
participated in a pie eating contest, and a brave few even (brrr!) 
went swimming. If tired, they retreated to the clubs lodge tor 
hamburgers, hot dogs and soda. As the sun went down and the 
afternoon's games came to a close, the memorable lip-sync 
contest was held. Particularly funny was Brian Wezowicz's 
impersonation of a Spice Girl. At 1 1 :00 the e\ erring came to a 
close and the weary, but bonded, seniors boarded buses for

Mike McGarry '99 

Once again, Longmeadow High School has graduated 
another group of talented and promising seniors. On 
June 14th, the town watched as the junior marshals, 
Justin Blair and Julie Bailey, ushered in the class of 1998 
for their final gathering. Their entrance was accompa- 
nied by the traditional playing of "Pomp and Circum- 
stance" as interpreted by the Brass Choir under the 
direction of Mr. Mucci. 

Once seated the graduating class was offered 
words of advice and encouragement from the Principal 
Doctor Murphy, Superintendent Doctor McGarry, and 
this year's guest speaker, Doctor Joseph J. Ellis, a 
professor at Mount Holyoke College. In addition, a 
reflection on the class' time together was offered by 
class president, Ryan Thompson, and the school was 
presented the class' gift by Treasurer Benji Russel. This 
year the class donated large sums of money to different 
organizations and clubs throughout the school. Diplo- 
mas were then presented to the class, followed by the 
customary tossing of the caps. With that, the class of 
1998 officially completed their stay at LHS and moved 
on into the exciting and limitless future.

The Major Works Concert, held on the 21st of May, featured the Wind Ensemble, 
Lyrics, and Symphony Orchestra. The concert began with a bang, with the Wind Ensemble's 
performance of Carmina Burana . The thirteen movements were performed flawlessly and 
left the audience speechless and on their feet in ovation. Following them was Lyrics. The 
vocal group performed a piece entitled Requiem and, as always, gave an incredible perfor- 
mance, featuring solos from seniors Swaroop Samant, Katie Mikesh, Sara Gowtham amd 
Dana Lanids as well as sophomore Nora Camp. The evening ended with the Symphony 
Orchestra's performance of the second suite from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet . The six 
movements were performed beautifully and featured solos from seniors Isabelle Eiff, Dan 
Friedman and Jessie Steinman, as well as junior Sammy Chang. The entire evening went 
beautifully and featured truly memorable music.

The annual Spring Concert, held on May 28th, was 
once again a huge hit and marked the end of another fantas- 
tic concert season here at LHS. The Women's Chorus led off 
the evening with two wonderful pieces. They were followed 
by the Concert Band, whose performance of "Inferno" was 
not only an ensemble favorite, but an audience one as well. 
Men's Chorus performed the popular Billy Joel song, "For the 
Longest Time" and were followed by Shatic Mitchell and 
Elward Tyrell performing a Music Lab Composition, a first 
for the Spring Concert. Following them was perhaps the 
greatest highlight of the evening for many, a performance by 
Lloyd. The A Cappella group performed Boyz II Men's 
"Hard to Say Goodbye," a fitting tribute to the end of the 
concert season and there graduating seniors. A special Jazz 
combo performance followed intermission and La Cappella 
was also featured in the second half of the evening. They 
performed a medley of songs including a piece entitled, 
"Africa." Finally, to end out the evening the ever-popular 
Jazz Ensemble performed "A Tribute to Duke Ellington," a 
compilation of five Ellington pieces. All in all the concert 
was a huge success as was the entire year for the musicians 
here at LHS.

An Evening Gala 

Nicole Megatulski '00 and Jessica Dugre '00 

On the night of March 27, sophomores, 
along with some freshmen and upper classmen 
assembled in front of LHS awaiting their golden 
coaches to bring the stylishly dressed to BayPath 
College for an evening of dinner and dancing. 
Round tables were filled with laughter and 
enjoyment as everyone finished dinner in a rush 
to hit the dance floor. (Many didn't even sit long 
enough for their ice cream sundaes to melt.) Not 
a space could be found on the dance floor as 
students from all grades removed their shoes and 
danced all the way to the last note. The evening 
seemed to come to a close much too soon as their 
golden coaches arrived to return them to LHS. 
The students rushed to get on the first bus in 
order to make it back to parties that lasted well 
into the night. Many returned home in the wee 
hours of the morning only to retire their dancing 
shoes and remember this night for years to come.

and Jen Casartello take a minute from admiring the

The varsity and junior varsity baseball teams 
had a long and hard season. The varsity team, led by 
coaches John Mayo, Dan Donovan, and Tim Doyle 
had a record of 8 wins and 12 losses. The team pulled 
together at the beginning of the season but began to 
struggle towards the end. Senior team captains this 
season were Adam Kramer and Steve Stierer. Kramer 
led the team in batting average at around .500, while 
Stierer helped the infield be at its best. He played a 
large part in some of the wins, because of his out- 
standing pitching. The Varsity team was composed of 
one freshman, four sophpomores, four juniors, and 
four seniors. Freshman Adam Derby says, "Being on 
the team was a lot of fun. It was a great experience, 
because of the leadership exhibited by some of the 
guys on the team. Everyone pulled together in an 
attempt to make it into the playoffs." 

The Junior Varsity team also had a great 
season as well. The team learned a lot and enjoyed 
themselves at the same time. Sophomore captains 
Sean Ginley and Dan Gallant helped the team through 
the many ups and downs of the season. Ginley and 
freshman Chris Methe alternated pitching, while Ryan 
Devine was crucial in keeping the outfield at its best. 
The team, with the strength of their freshmen, is 
looking forwad to next season.

The Varsity Girls' Softball Team had an 
exciting season this year improving last year's 
record to finish 8-10. Although it was not one of 
their best seasons, the team always stayed 
upbeat and optimistic thanks to the team's great 
spirit, and the leadership of the team captains 
seniors Kathy Danahey and Margaret McKenna. 
Some key players during this "rebuilding" year 
were seniors Lauren Joyce who was voted team 
MVP, McKenna, and sophomore Sara Albert. 
The team was also helped out by great pitching 
from Joyce, and junior Lauren Frank. Junior 
Candace McCarthy remarkes on the team's 
season, "Despite the fact that we didn't have a 
lot of luck this season, we all still had a lot of 
fun working together as a team, and we learned 
a lot throughout the season as well." 

The Junior Varsity team of '98 also had 
a great season, thanks to the leadership of their 
captains sophomores Emily McMahon and 
Jocelyn Farmer, as well as the outstanding 
coaching of Kerry Jenkins. Congratulations to 
both teams on excellent seasons!

The boys track team, led by Coaches 
Efstratios and Provonos, along with senior 
captains Ken Sheffield, Chris Johnson, and 
Andrew Camp finished the year with a record 
of 3-4-1. Many new and talented members 
joined the track team for the '98 season, and 
they showed promise for the years to come. 
The team saw its share of victories and losses 
this season, and were able to make it all the way 
to the Western Mass Championships where 
they finished in fourth place. However, the 
year did not finish there for this impressive 
team. Seniors Andrew Camp, Chris Johnson, 
Junior Trip Young, and freshman Jonathan 
La f ranee, composed the four by eight relay 
team that represented LHS at States. This 
impressive debut by the freshmen Lafrance, 
shows the incredible and valuable talent of the 
newcomers to the team. Senior Andrew Camp 
also represented the team at states, running in 
the mile. Congratulations to all of the outstand- 
ing athletes!

The girls track and field team had 
an outstanding season this year. Under the 
leadership of Coach Beth Pelland and 
senior captains KC Washington, Jess 
Farmer, Jen Hamlin, Katie Garvey, and 
Leah Halsey the team posted a regualr 
season record of 7-2. Three school records 
were also broken during the season. One 
was the 4x800 relay in which Hamlin, 
junior Katie Ward, and sophomores Nora 
Camp, and Laura Harwood broke the 
record by ten seconds. Washington broke 
the record in the discus with a 99ftl0 in 
throw, and sophomore Laura Risi broke the 
record in the pole vault. The team as a 
whole worked together towards this suc- 
cessful season. "It's an outstanding group 
of girls, and I'm looking forward to next 
season," said Coach Pelland.

The LHS boys' Varsity lacrosse team played hard and 
as a team all throughout the season and found that with this 
cooperation and effort the team could go quite far. They made 
it to the playoffs for the twenty-ninth consecutive season, a 
most an impressive feat. One of the team's strengths was their 
incredible talent. With the help of their captains, the younger 
players developed into outstanding athletes. The future looks 
bright for the boys' lacrosse team in upcoming years. 

Some key players who made amazing contributions to 
the team are Eli Greiner (long stick mid-fielder), Brian Weeks 
(mid-fielder), and Brian Wezowicz (defense). Captains Matt 
Szlachetka, Brian Wezowicz, Jay MacDonald and Ryan Thomp- 
son did an outstanding job of showing how teamwork is the 
key to success. Coach Glen Mailer and Assistant Coach Marty 
Lynch guided the team toward another season full of accom- 

The Junior Varsity boys' lacrosse team also had an 
excellent season. Although they had a rocky start, the team 
improved tremendously once they learned to come together. 
Sophomore captains Dan Gold, Tim Walsh and Will Chamber- 
lain were great role-models for the rest of the team. They all 
will make great additions to the varsity team this coming

The Varsity Girls Lacrosse team went 
all out this year with another great season. 
The team, consisting of six seniors, eight 
juniors, four sophomores and one freshman, 
was very talented and with so many under- 
classmen, should come back very strong in 
the next few years. Senior Co-Captains 
Bridget O'Connor, Katie Heaps, and Meghan 
Martin led the team with their leadership 
and ability. The team went 14-5, making it to 
the quarter finals in the state tournament. 
Some players to watch next season will be 
junior Meaghan McCormick, and sopho- 
mores Melissa Martinelli and Courtney 

The Junior Varsity Lacrosse Team 
was impressive as well this season winning 
all but two of their games. Sophomore 
captains, Sarah Stewart and Molly LaBroad 
pulled the team together when it counted, 
leading their team to several victories 
throughout the season. Coaches Kim

The 1998 Boys' Tennis Team had 
an extremely successful season that 
yielded a Western Massachusetts Cham- 
pionship. Led by captains, senior Rick 
Harbison and junior Alex Grodd, and 
Coach Mr. McCarthy, the team finished 
the season with a record of 13 wins and 
2 losses. Though all of the members 
contributed to the team's success, some 
of the key players this season were 
senior Rick Harbison, juniors Alex 
Grodd, Justin Blair, and Mayer Kahan 
along with sophomores Ryan Birtwell, 
Mike McCary, and Howie Kung. Alex 
Grodd summed up the effort by saying, 
"We worked hard and had fun as a 
team, and it translated into a great 
season." Congratulations on another 
excellent season!

The Longmeadow High School Girls' 
Tennis Team led by new coach Steve Lesko and 
senior co-captains, Justine Kurland and Cassie 
Marantz, had an excellent '98 season, finishing 
with an incredible record of 13-1. The team's 
record allowed them to compete in the Western 
Mass. Competition for the eighth year in a row. 
However the team was defeated, despite an all 
out effort by the LHS players. As the team 
looks back on the year they remeber the enthu- 
siasm and support they received from one 
another and their numerous McDonald's 
celebrations. The team is confident that there 
will be many more celebrations to come and 
they are determined to regain their spot on top. 

Key players this season were seniors 
Isabelle Eiff, Cassie Marantz, Jen Kuhr, Becky 
Rhee and Justine Kurland, as well as juniors Pia 
Solomon and Jaclyn Loizzo. The team also 
benefited from strong play by sophomores 
Rebecca Jangraw, Klara DeTemmerman, Raeka 
Talati and Erin D'Elia. The outstanding under- 
classmen show incredible promise for more 
outstanding play in the coming seasons. Con- 
gratulations to all of the players on yet another 
outstanding season!!

H/g/j School on the 
way to the "real world " 
has not always been paved 
..j . ■ with smiles, fun, and happiness. Indeed, 

we all have discovered that Longmeadow quite often 

is not the castle on a cloud as it is perceived. However, like 
all of the fairy tale characters we have grown up to admire, we 
at Longmeadow find ourselves constantly striving to better our- 
selves. Like Princess Winnifred, ive search to gain more out of life 
and our time together. And that is what Longmeadow High School has 
been for us - a place to discover our dreams and our hopes and perhaps, 
if we're lucky, ourselves. Through friendship, laughter, and yes, even stress, 
we have pushed ourselves to become who we were always meant to be. Along the 
way, we've realized that people and lives inevitably change, that how we care is who we 
are, and that, even though we arc a little scared, we are ready tor the whole new world that 
awaits US just outside the castle gates. These years at Longmeadow High School are an important 
chapter in our lives— they are our stories' beginnings filled with memories, experiences, and dreams., 

T I O N 

The class of 1998 proudly dedicates "Once Upon a 
Time," the 1998 Masacksic , to Mr. Jeff Goodwin. Mr. Goodwin's 
humor, friendship, and obvious love for teaching has greatly 
influenced the lives of his faithful students. No matter how 
difficult the challenge, he has always found a way of reaching 
those in need. Through laughter, perseverance, and his unique 
teaching style, Mr. Goodwin epitomizes the distinguished 
teacher and role model. 

Teacher of biology and chemistry, Mr. Goodwin cares 
about helping his students in and out of the classroom. Many 
seniors claim to have formed a rare bond with Mr. Goodwin. 
Because he is so open, friendly, and accessible, some seniors 
who never even had the privilege of being in one of Mr. 
Goodwin's classes consider themselves his students. They 
claim that he teaches lessons about life as well as lessons in 
science. He understands and, as one student puts it, "always 
knows the right things to say." 

One of Mr. Goodwin's finest attributes is 
is teaching style inside of the classroom. Mr. 
Goodwin's classroom, which consists of a light- 
hearted yet hard-working atmosphere, houses 
the magical world of horse friends, moles, and 
other imaginative characters. These are the char- 
acters that always end up on his tests which 
teach a lesson and tell a story. Mr. Goodwin's 
tests spark the interest of all of his students in a 
voice all his own. 

Talented teacher, mentor, creator, Mr. 
Goodwin has served another important role for 
the Class of 1998. He has been our friend.

Summer vacation serves as a break between two seemingly 
endless and very tiring school years, and is much needed oy 
the students here at Longmeadow High School. Some people 
used the summer as a resting period that included nothing more 
than reducing themselves to couch potatoes while catching the 
occasional ray of sun. While others used it as a time to get away 
from Longmeadow (which is usually dormant during the sum- 
mer) and went somewhere exciting. Sophomore Marisa Moseley 
escaped to Guyana for two weeks where she visited friends and 
familv while touring the country. Emily Darling, a sophomore, 
toured Israel for two weeks with her familv and a tour group. 
Senior Swaroop Samant visited his relatives in Mumbai, India. In 
fact, there was probably a native of LHS in just about everv corner 
of the world this summer. And for those who couldn't get away 
this summer, camps were a popular way of passing the summer. 
Longmeadow tampers did just about everything imaginable, 
from basketball camp at Babson college to tennis camp in South 
Hadley. It'^ safe to say thai everyone enjoyed their time away 
horn school, whether they sat in front of the television all summ 
or took exciting trips. Can't wait 'till next year

New to LHS this year are Student Learning Opportunities, or 
SLOs. (Some comical teachers like to refer to them as 
SLOPS.) SLO is the euphemism for what was originally 
called a "study hall," before the state instituted the 990 hour 
requirement on all students. Unfortunately the study halls of the 
fairy-tale past just don't qualify as real "learning opportunities" 

All students are assigned to a room for their SLO blocks. 
For freshmen, nothing has really changed, because they are still 
stuck in an assigned SLO for the entire hour. However, for 
sophomores, juniors, and seniors, a SLO is something new. Gone 
now are the days of reminiscing about freshmen studies. Sopho- 
mores no longer have the luxury of cafeteria studies with food and 
friends. The freedom of having free blocks and leaving the school, 
is gone for juniors and seniors, who can no longer think back to 
their freshmen and sophomore years and laugh. 

As for the students' reactions, some find the new SLOs to 
be helpful because it forces them to sit down and get 
work done without distractions. A great majority ol 
students however, prefer the freedom of cafe studies 
and free blocks, and can now only hope for some-

together during weekends, (below) 


"f you're ever sitting in English class and the teacher asks for an 
example of an oxymoron try this out: a fun weekend in Long 
.meadow. Weekends are supposed to be a fun time spent 
relaxing and hanging out with friends. Unfortunately, Long- 
meadow doesn't exactly abound with excitement. Most Friday 
nights here in Longmeadow consist of a very cold night at the 
football game and maybe a stop at Friendlys or Lil Peach after- 
wards. Or for some of the less fortunate the night is spent baby- 
sitting or in some cases being baby-sat. 

With Friday night down, two more days are left to the 
weekend. At this point, most people are at a loss for things to do. 
It's widely agreed among the students at LHS, that to have an 
enjoyable weekend you have to do everything in your power to get 
out of Longmeadow. Hitting the slopes is always a popular way 
to spend a winter weekend, or some prefer to take a day trip up to 
New York City. Weekends, or perhaps Sundays, can be a very 
important part of the weekend for lot of students, especially those 
who like to begin their three hours of tedious homework at around 
ten-thirty that night. 

Once in a while, term paper blues can also kill your 
weekend plans, but there's always a good weekend to be had — 
just be prepared to have to go out and find it!

Whether in need of spending money, a car, or trying to help 
relieve the overwhelming burden of college tuition costs looming 
in the near future, many LHS students have hit the work force. 

While most students have little to offer in the form of 
degrees and experience, they usually can find minimum wage jobs 
at almost any of Longmeadow's businesses. CVS, Friendly's, 
Armada's, and Rinaldi's are some of the many places that employ 
teenagers part-time. 

Students with special skills can also find jobs lifeguarding 
or working for the local paper and /or LCTV. Even for students 
lucky enough to land such jobs, the pay may be less than desirable. 
Still, an after school job usually supplies enough money to pay off 
the month's car insurance and have enough left over for a Saturday 
night out on the town.

by Kcllic Tracy 

The Fruit Sale is the major fund-raising project of the LHS 
Music Department. Held annually in the fall, the sale raises 
money to fund the year's busing to concerts, competitions 
and auditions, to purchase music, and to be saved for future 
occasions. This year, the Fruit Sale brought in a whopping $12,000 

The success of the sale was due greatly to the hard work of 
the student musicians. Each music student was required to sell 
$100 worth of citrus oranges and grapefruits over a span of 
approximately two weeks. Then, in early December when the 
orders came in, many students sacrificed SLOs to lug the boxes to 
the auditorium stage. Still more worked on Saturday, December 
6th, carrying 20 pound boxes of fruit to cars and verifying receipts. 
( ommented vocal musicdirector Peter Thomsen, "I think the Fruit 
Sale gives the students a wonderful opportunity to work together 
to support public education." Obviouslv, the students agreed.

Seniors Diego Hermosilla and Lia Lefreniere delight Juniors Robyn Weinstein, 
Seamus Cullinan, Keith Bartolomei by talking to them at the dance, (below) 

'or some guys, the thought of a school dance brings date- 
anxiety. It is not too rare Tor a guy to clear his throat, grab the 
pen on his desk with a shaking grip, and begin drafting a note 
to the girl next to him in math class containing that one ominous 
question: Will you go to the dance with me? 

The Sadie Hawkins Dance let the male population breathe 
a little easier. For this dance, held on Friday, December 12th, girls 
asked the guys. As usual, the setting was the lovely (and elegant) 
school cafeteria. However, this year's dance had a new twist. 
Instead of being limited to juniors and seniors, it was open to the 
whole school. Freshmen and sophomores joined the upperclass- 
men to dance to popular music and to drink the free soda provided. 
While the dance was momentarily disrupted when a fire alarm was 
pulled, sending students shivering to the lobby, overall attendees 
had a good time. 

The dance served as a fund-raiser for all four classes. The 
money earned at the event was split up proportionally based upon 
the number of students that attended from each respective class. 
However, the dance enhanced school spirit as well. Remarked 
Senior Class Secretary Leah Halsey, "Students look forward to 
chances to get together other than during the school day and at 
— ting events."

Despite a lower attendence than in years past, this year's 
Halloween Dance was a great success. Lured by such 
perks as free soda, a great DJ and a professional photogra- 
pher to capture the memories, Juniors and Seniors gathered after 
the night's football game, dressed in costume, to dance the evening 

A popular event of the evening was the contest for the best 
costumes. Contestants were required to walk slowly in a circle so 
that judges could see their costumes as the DJ helpfully played 
music. The contenders were senior Imran Faruqi, who came 
dressed as a member of the Star Trek crew, and seniors Alison 
Hyde, Kate Garvey, Becky Williamson, Ryan McMahon, Margaret 
Townsend, and Lauren Katz, who came as the Spice Girls.

Practices might have been few and far between, but if team 
spirit was the determining factor, the Daisy and Weeds 
teams were well prepared for the annual Daisy Weeds game 
held Wednesday, November 26th. Each team began wearing its 
uniform, sweatpants and sweatshirts emblazoned with intimidat- 
ing messages for the other team, on Tuesday. 

On Wednesday, the two teams came dressed up again to 
participate in the pep rally, each team competing to scream louder 
and look stronger. The daisies, perhaps in retaliation for the 
intrusion of the night before, came equipped with music from

Senior year for the class of 1998 has been tarnished by the 
introduction of SLO blocks and the loss of the senior lounge. 
I [owever, these inconveniences have not prevented seniors from 
accomplishing that which seniors do best... NOTHING AT ALL. 
Oh, sure, we put on an amazing senior class play, we 
pursued our extracurricular activities diligently, and we certainly 
experienced the "college application grind "of first semester. How- 
ever, once the last of our letters was finished, so was our work ethic. 
We lounged. We slept. We watched Melrose Place, 
Jeopardv and even infomercials. We held meaningful conversa- 
tions with our parents, brothers, sisters, dogs, and fifth-cousins- 
twice-removed named Vinny to whom we hadn't spoken since he 
entered the witness protection program and moved to Arkansas. 
In short, we did anything and everything possible to avoid doing 

Next year we will make up for this year of slacking as we 
head off to our future destinations... but what does this one minus- 
i ule semester matter in the whole scheme of things? After all, 
which will we be most Likely to remember 40 years from now, the 
specifics of the reign of Charlemagne over the I loly 
Roman Empire or the specifics of ^n aimless after-

K group of sophmores share a special moment during lunch, (below) 


by Sheetal Khera 

Ah... lunch time in the LHS cafeteria. It's finally a time to 
take a break from lecturing teachers and to relax and socialize with 
friends. Or so a freshman would hope. In actuality, the cafeteria 
acts as yet another way to define the social hierarchy of the school. 
Freshmen, who are lowest in rank, are stuck by the wall. 

Mashed up against the 
far right wall provides for 
little space, if any, for fresh- 
men to sit and relax. The 
lunches, especially first and 
third, are crowded, but fresh- 
men are not able to migrate 
to open spaces in the center 
of the cafeteria, which is defi- 
nite] y non-freshmen gov- 
erned territory. 

The airless freshmen caf- 
eteria section is to. be ex- 
pected though. Freshmen 
are, of course, perched on 
the bottom rung of the lad- 
der of high school evolution. 
As they become sophomores, 
juniors, and finally seniors, 
they will someday see the 
light of day in the more spa- 
cious area by the windows. 
It serves as a great incentive.

i ■ ihe '97-'98 school year at LHS showed a wide variety of 
I fashions, fads, and trends. From two-inch platforms to 
JL cargo pants, the halls of Longmeadow High School looked 
more like the runways of New York City. Adidas bags adorned the 
backs of many students, while the ever popular L.L. Bean back- 
packs were seen on just about every freshman. Bootcut jeans 
gained popularity last year and were still a necessity in every 
student's wardrobe. Overalls made a comeback from our elemen- 

[ary school years. Comfy wool sweaters and cargo pants were "in" 
or the winter season, along with the revived "pea coat". How- 
■ver, on brisk winter mornings, it wasn't uncommon for many 
students to just throw on their Adidas warm-ups and a sweatshirt 
for the long day ahead of them.

seniors to come together as upperclassmen for one elegant 
evening. This year's Jr/Sr semi-formal was also largely 
attended by underclassmen and students from neighboring high 
schools who were invited as dates of the LHS juniors and seniors. 
The dance, held at Chez Josef, was once again a huge 
success. The dance floor was over-flowing with students while the 
DJ played all types of music. The only complaint, in fact, com- 
monly heard from students was that there seemed to be a lack of 
dance space; it was too crowded! The dance lasted for three and 
a half hours, but the festivities continued long into the night with 
post-dance activities.

November is notorious for being crunch time for seniors 
Still, the seniors complained very little and their perfor- 
mance of "Once Upon a Mattress" went down in the books 
as one of the best senior class plays ever to grace the stage of the 
LHS auditorium. 

The spectacular and hilarious performances of Katie 
Mikesh (Princess Winnifred), Dave Patterson (Prince Dauntless), 
Sassie Freedberg (Queen Agravain), Steve Cantin (King Sexti- 
mus), Evelyn Orenstein (Lady Larken), Eric Tjonahen (Sir Ham'), 
Swaroop Samant (Minstrel), Cassie Marantz (Jester), and Mike 
Burton (Wizard) left the audience amazed and delighted. 

The hard work and dedication of the Pit Orchestra also 
contributed to the play's success. Conductors Dana Landis and 
Jessie Steinman, both who hope to pursue careers in the music 
field, extended their rehearsal schedule to include "retreats" — 
full day rehearsals usually held on weekends. 

Much of the hard work was accomplished behind the 
s< enes, as senior directors Ben Abbate and Rebecca Cohen-Shrage 
labored for countless hours after school, along with co-producers 
Sydney Leavens and Drew Starr. Stephanie Angelides and Julia 
Rousse were the stage managers, and Jason McDonald was the 
technical director. Rich Baker constructed most of the class' fabu- 
lous set, and Laura Stewart designed the T-shirts and 
^ playbill. While space limits the students who can be

nee upon a time a child was born — 200 or so of them in fact. 

These children learned how to cry, to walk and to speak. 

They played in sand boxes, stuck their fingers in the icing 
of birthday cakes, and watched Maria, big bird and the gang on 
Sesame street. One day, equipped with smurf lunchboxes and 
brand new shoes, these little warriors were sent to seek their own 
destinies in the form of public education. 

It was quite a traumatic experience when whole 
_, groups were split along enemy lines into the Center, Blue- 
erry and Wolf Swamp zones. But recess was good, and kickball 
on Fridays wasn't so bad either. Fourth grade brought safety- 
hood to many complete with orange sashes and smelly ponchos. 
Once again, the knights or 1980 (and some '79 and '81 as 
well) were forced to form new allies in the middle school wars. 
Vanilla Ice's hit "Ice, Ice Baby" was all the rage as were snap 
bracelets and "Full House." Sporting fluorescent tye-dye, jam 
shorts, and (of course) side ponytails and the bang-whirl, the 
newly proclaimed Williams and Glenbrookers found the middle 
school not as scary as they had expected. In seventh grade they 
began switching classes and in eighth grade they 
sauntered with their big backpacks as the kings and 
queens of the castle.

OttCC Upon CI time —the year was 1994— we remember the dues drive, the countless phone calls, the whys 
of such a drive? We think back on the first class trip to New York— the South Street Seaport shopping trip, 
the plays— Les Miserables and Miss Saigon . We remember the question— are these freshman ready for a 
play such as Miss Saig on? 

OlKe Upon d tltne- -the year was 1995—the Sophomore lock-in, the "unusual" pizzas donated by Bertucci's, 
Dr. Murphy in the kitchen heating up all those pizzas, the exhausted bodies trying to get a moment of sleep 
anywhere. How wonderful it was for all the help we received in preparing, and cleaning. We remember 
the support from the parents that chaperoned during the wee hours of the morning. We remember the 
Sophomore Dinner Dance at Bay Path. Did that bus really break down? We all did finally arrive, even if 
we went in shifts, and fortunately the bus was in working order for our return trip to LHS. 
In the Spring the Sophomore trip to New York— once again shopping at the Seaport— What a gorgeous day 
it was! The plays were The King & I and Sunset Boulevard . We spent time looking for the two lost students 
who weren't really lost— just following directions— "If separated, stay put!"— but we didn't know where 
they were staying put!!! 

Once Upon a time—the year was 1996-the Class of '98 was more than half-way there! We remember the 
car wash— with the broken nozzle— Will this be the waterless car wash? Aha! A parent to the rescue with 
the correct Allen wrench! Then there came time for the Junior-Senior Semi-Formal at Chez Josef. Would 
there be a need for a breathalizer? No, we were on our best behavior all decked out in those fancy clothes- 
-with the occasional sound of "My strap broke— does anyone have a safety pin?" 

Once Upon a time— the year was 1997— We remember the car wash— again a scramble to get the water 
running— does that faucet key really work? The back to school dance, the Halloween dance, the Sadie 
Hawkins dance— Who won that best costume award at the Halloween dance? What girl asked you to the 
Sadie Hawkins? 

We will always remember Once Upon a Mattress . Oh, will we remember it - the ordering of scripts, the 
painting of sets, the tears of sorrow, the tears of laughter, the endless time in the cafeteria as we awaited 
our turn to perform. Setting up the television monitors so we could see what was going on stage. 
Wondering - The pit orchestra, will they be too loud? The backstage crew— will they be too loud?? The cast 
behind the curtains, will they be too loud??? The actors, will they be loud enough???? And with style and 
grace you came through with flying colors and put on a memorable performance. 

Once Upon CI time— the year 1998 was happening— As we write this and reminisce, we are thinking - the 
Junior-Senior is next week, the Valentines and Heart-To-Heart are near at hand, we are in the midst of 
college acceptances, looking forward to the senior week with the banquet, High Meadows, Prom, 
rehearsals, and finally graduation. 

Once Upon a time— the next millennium— where are you, Class of 1998? Happy, healthy, full of remem- 
brances. We wish you well. We are proud to have been your advisors. 

Bravo, Bravo, Bravissimo!!!!!!

. . .are the children of the Eighties. We are not the first "lost generation/' nor today's lost gener; 
inB:t, we think we know just where we stand-or are discovering it as we speak. We are the ones who played 
uilding Blocks when they were just building blocks and gave Malibu Barbie crewcuts with safety 






scis^^sthat never really cut. We collected Garbage Pail Kids and Cabbage Patch Kids and My LittlePonies 
and Hot Wheels and He-Man action figures and thought She-Ra was the perfect woman. We played with Pogo 
Sticks, Skip-Its, Hula Hoops, Big Wheels; bicycles with streamers were the way to go, and sidewalk chalk was 
It ydo* needed to build a city. Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite, and Pillow People came to bed with us 
every nignf imagination was the key. It made the Ewok Tree house big enough for you to be Luke, and the 
kitchen table and an old sheet dark enough to be a tent in the forest. Your world was the backyard and it was 
all you needed. With your pink portable tape player, Debbie Gibson sang back up to you, and everyone wanted 
a skirt like the Material Girl and a glove like Michael Jackson's. We knew all the words to "Walk Like an 
Egyptian" and "We Didn't Start the Fire." We recited lines with the Ghostbusters and still look to The Goonies 
for a great adventure. We flip through TV stations and stop at Knight Rider and Fame, and laugh with The Cosby 
Show, Family Ties, Funky Brewster, and Growing Pains. We hold strong affections for The Muppets and The 
Gummi Bears. And why did they take The Smurfs off the air? We are the ones who read Nancy Drew and The 
Hardy Boys, The Babysitters Club, and Judy Blume. Friendship bracelets were ties you couldn't break, and 

K | 1/ 1/ — ' AX If J 

friendship pins went on your shoes, and pegged jeans were in as were layered socks, jean jackets, and jams. 
Charm necklaces, jellie bracelets, side ponytails, and boys' tails were things that every kid had to have. Braces 
with colored rubber bands made you look cool. The back door was always open and Mom served only red Kool- 
fAidjfto the neighborhood kids who never drank the New Coke. Entertainment was cheap and lasted for hours, 
eeded to be a princess were high heels and an apron; the Sit 'n' Spin always made you dizzy but never 

ade you stop; Pogo Balls were dangerous weapons, and Chinese Jump Ropes never failed to trip someone, 
underoos you were Wonder Woman, Spider Man, or R2D2, and in your tree house you were king. In 

' ,y "" 

the Eighties nothing was wrong. We forgot Vietnam and watched Tiananman Square on CNN and bough* 

mOSm jeans 

pieces of the Berlin Wall at the store. AIDS was not the number one killer of the United Statea 
we redefined the American Dream, and those years defined us. We are the generation in between strife and 
facing strife and not turning our backs. The Eighties may have made us idealistic, but it's that idealism that 
will push us and be passed on to our children-the first children of the 21st Century. Never forget: We are the 
children of the Eighties. 



They arrived wide-eyed 
at Orientation to be 
shown the wonders at 
High Castle. Athletic com- 
petitions were held almost 
every week, rewarding the 
fastest, strongest, and most 
agile in the land. Magical 
corridors rang with the 
golden-toned melodies of in- 
struments and voices alike. 
The inhabitants of High 
Castle kept themselves busy 
even after their nine hundred 
ninety hours Pursuing 
Knowledge: various organi- 
zations existed to broaden, their 
horizons and awareness. . .

Fifty-six minute ses- 
sions dominated the 
days at Longmeadow 
High Castle. The newcom- 
ers were shown into the 
Chambers of Knowledge 
where they were taught read- 
ing, writing, and arithmetic. 
These sessions kept them too 
busy to remember from which 
manor the others came. In- 
deed, friendship sprang up 
among even the most unlikely 
groups. It was this cordial 
"comradeship that strength- 
ened and gave them the cour- 
age needed to face the peril- 
ous hardships yet to come. . .

The Yearbook is not an organization for 
the student who sometimes turns in a paper a bit 
late. Because the annual yearbook must be com- 
pleted by March, yearbook staffers move to the 
ticking of the clock. They churn out quality work, 
much of which is expected mere weeks after it is 
assigned. "The dog ate my layout," is not an 
acceptable excuse when time is a factor. 

From September until March many dili- 
gent workers never see daylight. Perhaps, from 
their vantage point in room 113, they might catch 
a glimpse of the sun as it sets over the student 
parking-lot. They organize and crop pictures, 
write captions and copy articles, create layout for 
pages, and take care of the business aspect: orga- 
nizing ad campaigns and keeping records of pur- 

The largest burden falls onto the shoul- 
ders of Co-Editors-in-Chief Evelyn Orenstein and 
Swaroop Samant and managing editor Aizza 
Hassan. They not only assist with the jobs men- 
tions above, but also must organize meetings, and 
inspire the staff to meet deadlines. New advisor 
Roger LeBlanc also deserves credit for sacrificing 
his afternoons in order to make the 1998 Masacksic 
the best yearbook ever.

Impressions, the LHS literary maga- 
zine, has had a very successful year. A 
staff that more than doubled in its num- 
bers from the previous year read, reviewed, 
selected and published its annual collec- 
tion of student art and writing. 

The magazine was led this year by 
Editors-in-Chief, senior Sydney Leavens 
and junior Aizza Hassan, and was advised 
by Mrs. Linda McShane. They were helped 
ypnn HO and supported by editors along with doz- 
KiI u l ' <- ens of other dedicated staff. 

Not just a portfolio of student 
work, this year's Impressions staff followed 
last year's in trying to make the magazine 
one continuous work that was more pleas- 
ing to read than earlier editions. Art and 
writing of similar themes were placed to- 
gether, and the order of the selections was 
done to make Impressions as enjoyable to 
read as possible. The magazine has be- 
come a great place for students to express 
themselves to their fellow students in a 
variety of art forms.

The main goal of the Key Club here at LHS, is to impi 
home, school, and community through extensive commu 
service. Each member of the Key Club is required to do at 1 
twenty-five hours of community service per quarter, as wej 
attend weekly meetings. Under the leadership of this ye 
board members, seniors Angela Agnoli, Jacyln Brittman, Ei 
Randall, and Mark Zimring, juniors Kolajo Afolabi, Meaa 
McCormick, Bridget Yearwood, and Christine Coady, Key 
has had a very successful year. The club's advisors this year M 
Vesta Brown and Rita Hawker who helped the club reach rr» 
of its goals for the year. The club participated in several cha 
events, including the annual Hoop It Up in Springfield, and 
a great asset to the school, providing concessions at the m 
sports events throughout the year. They were also able to I 
money for the track fund, which will pay for LHS's new 
improved track. The Key Club is a great way for students tc 
more involved with the community and to help provide diffe 
services for the school. Their efforts and accomplishments n<

SADD, or Students Against 
Drunk Driving, is a club with a mis- 
sion. Under the leadership of club 
president senior Meghan Martin and 
faculty advisor Mrs. Wiseman, the 
club's goal is to make both the school 
and the Longmeadow community as a 
whole aware of how drinking and driv- 
ing can ruin one's life. This year, the 
club continued its campaign to stop 
the dangerous combination of drink- 
ing and driving by making posters to 
hang on school walls year round to 
warn students and by selling and hand- 
ing out red ribbons at athletic events 
and in the hallways for awareness. 

The senior Board members, Meghan Martin, Rachel 
Shelasky, and Lauren Katz, read out loud the latest 
sobering statistics about drunk driving, (above)

The LHS branch of the American 
Field Service (commonly known as AFS) 
offers students opportunities that most high 
schoolers merely dream of. Each year, the 
club assists students in participating in pro- 
grams abroad. This year, two LHS students 
spent six months abroad. Junior Leah Tivoli 
departed to Argentina, and junior Rob Dou- 
glas left for Chile. 

Another important function of the 
club was that of helping AFS exchange 
students Xulio Bieras, from Spain, Diego 
Hermosilla, from Chile, and Javier Reinick, 
from Argentina, to adjust to American cul- 
ture. Senior Co-Presidents Isabelle Eiff and 
Jenn Kuhr planned AFS dinners and meet- 
ings to help these students feel more at home. 

International Club — 

bringing the world home 

by Sheetal Khera 

The International Club this year continued its efforts to 
bring cultural awareness to the school, putting on all-day aware- 
ness days and sponsoring many different events throughout the 
year. They also enjoyed their time with their face-painting booth 
at the annual Longmeadow Days. 

The club was also very delighted and proud to be able to 
send delegations representing Mongolia and Guinea to the an- 
nual Harvard Model United Nations neld in Boston in December. 
They also participated in the one day Western New England 
College (WNEC) Model UN later on in March.

by Sydney Leavens 

This year, the Unity Club has not 
only helped create understanding among 
the many ethnic groups of the school, but 
has reached out to the community as well. 
The club, advised by Sandra MacDonald 
and led by senior President Aixa Weeks, 
raised money for various charities, includ- 
ing the Ronald MacDonald House and the 
Open Pantry, by holding fund-raisers. The 
club also successfully raised school spirit by 
forming the drill team, a group of dedicated 
club members who practiced every day af- 
ter school in order to perfect routines to be 
gerformed during the halftimes of basket- 
all games. 

The purpose of the club remains the 
same. This is, according to Weeks, "to pro- 
mote unity throughout the school and also 
in the community by helping others."

A Better Chance, or ABC, offers aca- 
demically gifted students from inner city 
settings the opportunity to attend well-re- 
puted public and private schools across the 
country. The Longmeadow branch, estab- 
lished in 1974, supports four or five students 
annually, and participants usually attend 
Longmeadow High School from the begin- 
ning of freshman year up until graduation. 

In order to remain in the program, a 
Longmeadow ABC student must maintain a 
GPA of at least 3.0. Participants also are 
assigned chores to do around their residen- 
tial house in town. This year's participants 
were seniors Shatic Mitchell and Elward 
Tyrell, sophomore Alex Garcia, and fresh- 
man Dereck Johnson. 


by Sydney Leavens 

The Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportuni- 
ties, or "Metco," began in 1968 as an integration program that 
allowed inner city students to attend suburban schools. How- 
ever, the real reason that the program has continued so success- 
fully, stresses assistant coordinator Sandra MacDonald, is be- 
cause city and town officials of both Springfield and Long- 
meadow have realized that it benefits both communities. 

For Springfield families participating in Metco, subur- 
ban school systems such as that of Longmeadow offer a support- 
ive environment in which students become aware of the ways 
and means to accomplish their goals — mainly, that of continu- 
ing their education after high school. For Longmeadow, which 
has participated in the program for 
more than a decade, Metco serves two 
purposes. The program is state-funded 
through a grant, and thus the town has 
benefited financially from the arrange- 
ment. More important, however, is the 
diversity that Metco promotes. This 
year there are 48 students in grades K- 
12 in Metco, which is assisted by Coor- 
dinator Jack Kelley and MacDonald.

Fellowship Alive in the High school, 
or FAITH, as it is more commonly called, 
offers students the chance to share and dis- 
cuss topics pertaining to Christianity. The 
club was started last year with the help of this 
year's seniors Sarah Gowtham and Erin Kent 
and has continued to grow in popularity ever 
since. Boasting approximately 20 members, 
the group met weekly under the guidance of 
student leaders Kent and Gowtham and ad- 
visors Mr. Potvin and Mrs. Gallagher. Meet- 
ings opened with a prayer, and then a section 
from the Bible was read and discussed. 

According to Kent, FAITH has served 
multiple purposes. "Not everyone has a 
youth group in his/her church, and there- 
fore don't necessarily have friends their own 
age with whom they share common beliefs. 
FAITH gives students of many different de- 
nominations a chance to see how similar 
their morals really are. We also want to share 
the word of the gospel. We feel we have 
something special and we don't want to keep 
it to ourselves." Kent further indicated that 
she had hoped by starting the club to defend 
her rights granted by the 1st Amendment. 

The club also reached out to the com- 
munity by going into downtown Springfield 
on the weekends to help the homeless and 
the poor. FAITH's biggest event has been 
celebrating an international day on the third 
Wednesday in September each year on which 
students gather around the flagpole and pray 
for the school and its leaders.

The '97-'98 Math League team en- 
joyed an outstanding year. This years mem- 
bers were freshmen, Rob Berger and Tim 
Ferris, sophomores, Rebecca Jengraw, Gabriel 
Katch, Howard Kung and Kate Miller, jun- 
iors, Samuel Chang, Stephanie Lin and 
Michael Stevens, and seniors, Steve Cantin, 
Michael Schwerin and Drew Starr. This year 
the Math League members met each week to 
take a fifteen-minute test and hone up their 
math skills. Those with the highest scores on 
that weeks test, went on to compete at the 
upcoming meet. Faculty advisor, Mrs. Pe- 
ters, helped the members discover their mis- 
takes in problems and offered ways for the 
members to improve their approach to cer- 
tain problems. The team focused on helping 
each other and always giving their best m an 
effort to be victorious over their opponents. 

As Schools Match Wits 

by Aizza Hassan 

This year Longmeadow High School's As Schools Match 
Wits team opened its season with a victory against Wilbraham- 
Monson early in September. The next match against St. Mary's 
produced similar results. Longmeadow's season ended with a 
loss to Loomis Chaffee. However, the team was far from devas- 
tated and is already looking forward to next year. 

The '97-'98 As Schools Match Wits team will conveneonce 
more in the spring at the MA Academic Championships. The 
team faired extremely well in the event last year and performed 
well again this year. Congratulations on an excellent season!!

Science League is a club that con- 
sists of people who are some of the most 
talented science students in the school, and 
others who enjoy participating in the fun 
and occasionally oft the wall events the club 
competes in. Team members get together 
and pre-build machines for many events; 
other events require only a bit of research 
and some luck. Several teams from LHS 
compete in each event and the combined 
talents of the many skilled members have 
resulted in a winning record in recent years. 
Regardless of their performance, the partici- 
pants always enjoy the tasty cookies and 
drinks provided for them afterwards. Dur- 
ing this time the results for each event are 
announced, as well as the overall winner 
and the events for the next meet. Perhaps 
senior Chris Johnson sums it up best, "It's a 
lot of fun. It's like science class without the 
tests." What could be better?

trial of the century 

by Sheetal Khera 

This year's Mock Trial team once 
again enjoyed an excellent season. Mock 
Trial is a statewide competition, in which 
teams take on the roles of both the Plaintiff 
and the Defense. Led by veteran attorneys 
senior Drew Starr and junior Meaghan 
McCormick and advised by Mr. Winseck, 
the team pulled through a trying season, 
once again facing their chief opponent, 
Minnechaug Regional High School. Mem- 
bers of the team ranged from seniors to 
sophomores taking on the roles of attorneys 
and witnesses on both sides of the aisle. This 
year's Mock Trial team was able to reap the 
results of their long hours of hard work and 
preparation, after ending with a very favor- 
able record. With all of the young talent on 
the team, the Mock Trial team can look for- 
ward to many more successful seasons in 
the future.

Should the government establish a program to find re-

question facing members of the LHS debate team this year. The 
team, led by senior captain Rebecca Cohen-Shrage, was actually 
comprised of six two person teams, three of which argued the 
affirmative and three the negative. Longmeadow boasted one of 
the strongest two-person teams in that league, that of Cohen- 
Shrage and junior Alex Grodd, who were named the first-place 
affirmative. They ended their season with an impressive record 
of 11-1.

Respect Every Alternative Lifestyle 
In Today's Youth, or REALITY, is the Long- 
meadow High School Gay-Straight Alli- 
ance and is dedicated to providing a safe 
place for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and 
transgendered students. In addition, one 
of the club's goals is to increase the student 
body's general awareness of gay and les- 
bian issues. 

The 1997-98 school year is the first 
full year of REALITY'S existence. With 
officers Rose Calucchia, Larry Mortensen, 
and Katie Michael, the club has held its first 
fundraisers, met with other local GSA's, 
created a regularly distributed newsletter 
through e-mail, and has plans to attend this 
year's Gay-Straight Youth Pride March in 

When asked about the future of 
REALITY, Calucchia, a co-coordinator, said, 
"I'm confident that in the years to come, the 
group will grow in size and really begin to 
get the message of respect across. In the 
meantime, I hope that by just existing as a 
club, we've helped someone understand 
that (s)he is not alone; that there are accept- 
ing people in our school."

extra, extra, read all about it 

by Sydney Leavens 

Those who read this year's Jet jotter 
would swear that it was a different paper. 
Under the guidance of faculty advisor Mrs. 
Warren, the school newspaper, in its 43rd 
year, introduced new columns to address 
issues of interest to students, like the Roving 
Reporter and Life Abroad. 

Much of the paper's success is due to 
the leadership of Co-Editors-in-Chief Drew 
Starr and Sydney Leavens. However, the 
large amount of time contributed by page 
editors and the layout editor in assigning, 
editing, and laying out articles enabled the 
paper to meet its monthly deadlines with 

Rough Draft — 

who needs real news? 

by Jeff Moran and Nick Duquette 

The Rough Draft went through a metamorphosis this 
year. It acquired a new advisor, Mr. Laird Ellis, a new editor-in- 
chief, Nick Duquette, and a new goal: complete world domina- 
tion. Sadly, the Rough Draft did not fulfill its goal for complete 
world domination (this year, at least). However, they did publish 
quite a few newspapers. 

Seriously, the Rough Draft is the magazine/newspaper of 
Longmeadow High. This year, the Draft overcame some chronic 
problems, and were able to publish somewhat regularly. However, 
a huge part of the Rough Draft was written by non-staff members. 
And that was the Rough Draft's real goal this year — to make 
newspapers and have fun. World domination is next year's goal.

Since 1986, the Business Club has 
been serving the students of LHS. From 
managing the Jet Jotter, to selling carnations 
and roses on Valentine's Day, the Business 
Club keeps very busy. 

The club doesn't just raise money. 
This year the club ran a very successful 
canned food drive, collecting 350 cans of 
food for local food charities. They also had 
the opportunity to serve food at the Spring- 
field Rescue Mission. 

The Business Club is advised by 
Mrs. Morse and this year's Honorary Presi- 
dent was senior Ryan Willoughby. The po- 
sition of Treasurer was filled by senior 
Elizabeth Picknally, and Secretary was se- 
nior Nicole Fishbein. The Club has enjoyed 
a successful year and is looking forward to 
continuing their service to the members of 
Longmeadow High School. 


Mountain Biking Club 

watch out for that tree 

This year marked the second year of the 
LHS Mountain Biking Club. Through this organi- 
zation, students at LHS are able to learn and expe- 
rience mountain biking with fellow peers and teach-

places around this region. 

Aside from biking, members learn and prac-

Ski Club 

hitting the slopes 

by Sheetal Khera 

As you pulled into the back parking lot on any given 
Thursday morning in January, chances were that you would see 
eager students with skis and other equipment filing inside. 
LHS' loyal ski clubbers enjoyed unwinding from a stressful day 
in school by skiing the slopes of the local ski area, Mt. Tom. 
Every designated Thursday afternoon, member of the ski club 
hurried to gather their things for the 2:30 bus departure for Mt. 
Tom. Although this winter did not prove to be the most 
desirable for skiers, the hills of Mt. 
Tom provided a refreshing way for 
students to endulge in some form of 
athletic activity this winter and 
spend time with their friends at the 
same time.

Those who love the outdoors found 
a home in the Outing Club here at LHS. 
This year's Outing Club, advised by Mrs. 
Laughlin saw its membership grow and 
found they were able to do more than they 
had originally hoped this year. Student 
leaders, juniors Heather and Kristen Fitts 
and sophomore Alix Sorrell, led the group 
on many excursions including a canoeing 
trip, an indoor rock climbing wall, and ski 
trip in the winter. Sophomore Nancy 
Picknally said, This year was a lot of fun. 
This was the first time I had ever been 
canoeing and I had a great time." Lots of

helping to save lives

This year Longmeadow branch of Amnesty Interna-

in extreme poverty and lack basic necessities such as clothing, 
food, and drinkable water. Under the direction of Amnesty 
president Jon Friedman, a junior, and faculty advisor John 
Fitzgerald, club members welcomed a guest speaker from Spring- 
field College to speak on the Haitian situation. Inspired by his 
presentation, the club decided to hold bake sales, clothing drives 
and even school supplies drives to send support to the Haitian

The French Club here at LHS was formed 
in an effort to give interested students an 
opportunity to speak French outside of class 
and learn more about France and French 
culture. Members do this by getting together 
to take French related trips, and by watching 
French movies. The members have also had 
the chance to dine at excellent French restau- 
rants in the area, such as Madeline's. The 
club has conducted several fund-raisers to 
help pay for these wonderful outings. In 
January, they sold "French" lollipops in an 
assortment of flavors. This year, the French 
Club advisor, Ms. Rooney, who was instru- 
mental in helping the French Club do many

The success of the LHS Wind Ensemble 
seems to keep snowballing, with this year's en- 
semble playing incredibly well and making great 
music. The obvious highlight of their year was in 
April when they had the opportunity to play at 
Carnegie Hall, arguably the best known musical site 
in the United States. Each member felt quite hon- 
ored to play at such a prestigious place of music 

history, and to even be a part of such a talented ensemble. Everyone in the ensemble 
contributed his/her full attention, focus, and ability to the band, ensuring their inevitable 
success. They were supported every step of the way by conductor, Mr. 
Michael Mucci, with his outstanding leadership qualities and ability to 
combine the technical aspects of music with intense passion and emotion. 
From the warm-ups to the concerts, this year's Wind Ensemble was perhaps 
one of the best ever, and there are only more good things to come.

Concert Band is one of Long- 
meadow High School's two band 
ensembles, and is, in addition, 
one of the largest ensembles in 

the school. It is composed of students in grades nine 
through twelve and conducted by Mr. Michael Mucci. 
The students enjoy the freedom and responsibility Mr 

Mucci gives them in allowing them to select their own 
music for their concerts. Concert Band performed in 
three concerts this year, the Fall Concert, the Pops Con- 
cert, and the Spring Concert. The main highlight of the 
year for the group was the performance or "The Empire 
Strikes Back" in the Pops Concert. For this piece, the 
group combined with Wind Ensemble and 
were conducted by new student teacher, 
Mr. Matt Bejune. Mr. Mucci expressed his 
feelings by saying, "They have a tremen- 
dous sound and energy and it is a delight to 
i onduct them."

This year's Lyrics vocal ensemble, directed by Mr. Peter 
Thomsen, took their music-making abilities to new heights. The 
40-member ensemble learned early in the year that their responsi- 
bilities as musicians would extend far beyond performances at the 

annual Winter, Pops, and Major Works Concerts. They were invited to participate in the 1998 
International Polychoral Concert in Montreal in April, scheduled to take place at the end of 
April vacation. Trie Polychoral Concert, taking place at Notre Dame Cathedral, features select 
high school choirs from around New England and Montreal. Besides the wonderful musical 
experience, Lyrics members will also share time doing "touristy" things, such' 
as viewing a Montreal Expos baseball game and visiting the Space Camp. 

According to Mr. Thomsen, the other successes of the group are "their ability 
to work cooperatively together on challenging music' and become "an en- 
semble based on leadership."

Maybe it was the love of music that drew them. Or maybe 
was the desire to perform. Or it could have been the need to 
ape the boredom of sitting in another SLO (aka Study Hall), 
hatever the reason, this year's Men's Chorus boasted more 
jmbers than ever before. The group, open to any Longmeadow 
gh male who Wished to sing, performed in the Fall and Pops 
ncerts, and also participated in the annual middle school tour.

La Capella, the all female vocal ensemble here at LHS, had 
an extraordinary year, that began with a memorable Fall Con- 
cert. With their numbers practically tripling this year, La Capella 
has gained popularity through the years thanks to the wonder- 
ful performances of past groups. This year's group, composed 
of sophomore, junior, and senior girls, performed well in the Fall 
Concert, singing popular sings by Fleetwood Mac and Monica, 
that allowed the school to see the amazing talent of some of the 
girls through their many solos. Their continuous effort and 
determination to do well were apparent throughout the year to 
the group's leader, Mr. Peter Thomsen. The group always had 
fun singing, whether it was in rehearsal or performance, which 
everyone could see by the enthusiasm with which the group 
sang. Mr. Thomsen feels that, "La Capella has become an 
exciting women's vocal ensemble that is very proud of their 
accomplishments." The members of La Capella are very happy 
with their performances as well as the growth and unity of the 
group this year, and they can't wait to perform again next year.

The freshmen belonging to the Women's Cho- 

(formerly known as "Girl's Chorus") started out 
Kir first year at LHS on the right foot. In this year's fall 
K cert, the group performed three songs titled, "Shower 
fif People," "River in Judea," and "El Condor Pasa." 
Bi Women's Chorus joined La Cappella, the Mens' 
Ibrus and Lyrics in this year's Winter Concert in 
W:ember, to sing the traditional song, "The Lord Bless 
i and Keep You . " As it was their first year in the LHS 
sic program, the girls had to adapt to Mr. Thomsen's 
hing style and unite as a group to perform well in the 
Concert. With their enjoyable and excellent perfor- 
ces, the '97- '98 Women's Chorus showed LHS that 
e is never a lack of talent in the music department, 
ch only bodes well for the future.

This year's concert season started off with a bang on 
November 25th with the Fall Concert, in which the LHS Con- 
cert Band and many vocalist groups performed. Among the 
pieces the Concert Band played, "Waterdance" was an audi- 
ence favorite. The Fall Concert was also the debut of the 
Freshmen Girls' Chorus. They performed extremely well, 
singing "River of Judea" among other pieces. The Men's 
Chorus was also featured, as was La Cappella. La Cappella 
performed a popular piece by Fleetwood Mac as well as one by 
Monica entitled, "For You I Will." 

Next up on the concert schedule was the ever-popular 
Winter Concert held on December 18th. This concert brought 
the first performances by both the LHS Orchestra and Wind 
Ensemble, as well as I Cantori and Lyrics. The Orchestra 
played three pieces and their finale of "Hall of the Mountain 
King" by Grieg brought the audience to their feet in a standing 
ovation. The Wind Ensemble also performed extremely well 
featuring pieces that highlighted their many strengths. I Cantori, 
an A Cappella group performed as did Lyrics, singing better 
than ever. And what would any Winter Concert be without the 
Super Chorus. The Super Chorus consists of all the vocalist 
groups as well as alumni from LHS back home for Winter 
break, together on stage at once singing the traditional, "The 
Lord Bless You and Keep You." 

The annual Pops Concert was also a smashing success 
this year. This concert featured a special performance from the 
Symphonic Band, which is a combination of Concert Band and 
Wind Ensemble and composed of a total of 1 10 members. Their 
playing of "The Empire Strikes Back" was a real hit with the 
audience. The concert also featured all of the talented vocalist 

groups here at LHS. The Freshmen Girls Chorus performed well, singing "Shoo Shoo Baby." La 
Cappella was a hit with their performance of "Route 66," as was the Men's Chorus and their rendition 
of "Lonesome Road." The two groups combined to perform "One Love" by Bob Marley. Lyrics was also 
featured, singing "Goldmine" with solos by many of its members. The vocal highlight of the evening 
for many, however, came with the performance by Lloyd, and their singing of "Seven." The Super 
Chorus finished out the vocal part of the night with the popular U2 hit "Still Haven't Found What I'm 
Looking For." The outstanding LHS Jazz Band was the last performance of the evening, playing three 
pieces including "Half the Fun" by Duke Ellington about Cleopatra's seduction o£ Antony while on the 

Overall, the extensive musical talents, both instrumental and vocal, of the students here at LHS 
were well showcased throughout the year, with many outstanding and memorable performances.

years ago, several enthusiastic LHS artists 
started a club based on their shared hobby, 
but the club died with their graduation. 
Now the Art Club is making a comeback, 
and members hope that it is here to stay. 
Advised by Ms. Godin, this year's goal of 
student artists was not only to reestablish 
their club, but to take a trip in the spring to 
New York to spend a day touring art mu- 
seums. To reach this goal, the club held 
many fund-raisers, including successful 
poster sale and many bake 'sales. What 
was so great about the club, sophomore 
member Christa Kolb explained, was that 
"[it] is open to anyone, regardless of tar-

love for acting that none other could match. 
The group, under the direction of Vicki Phillips, 
competes with nearly 100 other in the state- 
wide Massachusetts High School Drama Guild 
Festival. This year, the ensemble put on a 
performance of the play "Voices From a High 

From September until December, the 
group was indiscernible from any other acting 
class. Phillips held workshops in order for 
each of the 12-member-strong ensemble to hone 
his/her acting skills. In December, however, 
the atmosphere of the club changed. Audi- 
tions were held for parts in the competition 
performance, and meetings increased from once 
a week to every day after school as February28, 
the day of Preliminary competition, grew closer. 
It was worth the struggle.

The LHS Varsity Foot- 
ball team capped off an amaz- 
ing season with its first 
Superbowl win since 1992. The 
Lancers clearly entered the 
game as underdogs against 
undefeated Nashoba but left 
the field with a 12-10 win. 
"What made our season so 
special," remarked Varsity 
Head Coach Alex Rotsko, "was 
the fact that we were not highly 
rated at the beginning of the 
year but proved everyone 
wrong." The team's impres- 
sive season record of 10-2 was 
due greatly to the leadership 
of team senior captains Adam 

Kramer and Brian Wezowicz 
and to the unusual talent of 
such key players as Wezowicz, 
Kramer, junior Adam Dia- 
mond and sophomore Ryan 

The Junior Varsity 
team had a good season as well. 
The team fought hard and 
strong for its 5-4 overall record. 
"The sophomores did a good 
job at J.V. level this year," re- 
marked J.V. Head Coach St. 
George, "We expect many of 
them to move up to Varsity 
next year." 

The Freshman football 
team emerged strong with a 
record of 6-3.

Cheerleading, like 
most sports, practices every- 
day after school. The practices 
are hard in preparation for 
games, the squad's primary 
goal, as well as competitions. 
Says assistant varsity coach, 
Eleanor Matroni, "At practice, 
we try to cover a lot of material 
and all the squad members 
work hard to get the most of 

Cheerleading at 
games is a performance, not a 
competition. The Varsity 
cheerleaders cheer at all boys' 
Varsity football and basketball 
games. The J.V. squad cheers 
at the boys' J.V. home games 
and during the football sea- 
son, has the added opportu- 
nity of joining the varsity 
squad for their home games. 
Kate Mullen, the J.V. Coach, 
says, "I have really enjoyed 
coaching this year and enjoy 
working with such a strong 
cheerleading program." 

The Varsity squad 
here at LHS also competes in 
many competitions against 
other high school squads at 
the local and state levels. Last 
year, the cheerleaders made it 
to Nationals and competed 
against squads from all over 
the United States. Senior cap- 
tains, Meredith Winer and Sa- 
rah Gowthorn, comment, 
"Cheerleading has come so far, 
we are really proud of our 
achievements, and we have 
had an excellent season. We 
hope to be on our way to Na- 
tionals again this year and 
achieve the high goals we 

Leading the program 
this year is head coach, Priscilla 
Diaz. She says of the cheer- 
leaders' goals, "You'll never 
know if you don't try! So, 
don't spend you life wonder- 
ing 'what if.'" We hope to see 
the cheerleaders off to Nation- 
als again this year, so GO!

This year was another 
in a long line of successful sea- 
sons for both the girls' and 
boys' Cross Country teams. 
Both teams finished with win- 
ning records, 11-2 for the girls 
and 10-3 for the boys. The 
girls finished third at the West- 
ern Mass competition, but 
didn't stop there continuing 
on to States. The boys' team 
came extremely close to mak- 

ing States, finishing fourth at 
Western Mass. 

This year, the girls' 
captains were seniors Cassie 
Marantz, Jen Hamlin and Anna 
Yearwood. Other top runners 
included juniors Katie Ward, 
Stephanie Wesowitz and 
Christine Coady. Leading the 
boys team this year were se- 
nior co-captains, Andrew

included juniors Trip Young

as it would have hoped, fin-

of 6-8-3. However, according 
to senior team captains Mike

O'Malley, "[The season]

a record at about .500. Team 
captains were assigned at ev- 
ery game based on work ethic, 
which not only encouraged 
players to try hard in practice 
but also gave them valuable 
leadership opportunities. The 
Freshman team, concluded its 
season with only 4 wins and 3 
losses; yet players learned to 
work together as a team, a skill 
which will be valuable when 
they advance to JV and Var-

were instrumental in leading 
practices that eventually led

against Minnechaug and never 
looked back. Throughout the 
season the team really pulled

Ann Simons, have worked 
hard to run great practices and 
get the team in shape. As 

Sophomore Caroline Adams 
said, "The team practices hard 
and really pulls together in prac-

out onto the field ready to play 
hard and win."

has garnered tremendous sup- 
port from everyone at the 
school. With great leadership 
the co-captains, seniors Stevie 
Laughlin and Stefanie 
Angelides, as well as junior 

Carla Goldman, led the team 
through everyday after school 
practices, and kept spirits up 
throughout the season. As fresh- 
man Sara Joyce says, "We've had 
a lot of fun this season. Our 
coaches and captains were great, 
and the team really pulled to- 
gether to come away with some 
tough wins." The team showed 
LHS that they have great team 
spirit and good sportsmanship.

The '97-'98 LHS Golf 
team enjoyed a challenging 
season this year. In only their 
second season, the golf team 
continued to grow and im- 
proved their skills tremen- 
dously. This year, the team 
saw a surprising change from 
being a member of the spring 
sports line-up to one of the fall 
sports. Their final season 
record was 5-13-1, but the team 

really worked together and 
never once did their spirits fall. 
The team continually worked 
hard throughout the year and 
helped each other through the 
many ups and downs of the 
season. Says sophomore Evan 
Gerber, "Last year we had a lot 
of excellent players but it did 
not seem as if we were really 
working together. This year, 
we had a lot of talent and it felt 
like out team really worked as 
one." Congratulations to the 
LHS Golf team on their fine

Men's Basketball 

by Sydney Leavens 


The '97-'98 
served as a rebuilding year for 
the men's varsity basketball 
team. The loss of several key 
players, coupled with a change 
in coaching, caused the team 
to struggle for its 3-17 record. 
The team's precious wins, 
however, including an exhila- 
rating one against West 
Springfield in overtime, made 
it stronger. Under the leader- 
ship of captains senior Adam 
Kramer and junior Tom 
Moran, players paved the way 

for solid seasons in years to 

The JV team also had a 
tough year, finishing the sea- 
son with a record of 6-13. The 
team was coached by Jay 
Fenalson and led by sopho- 
more captain Tim Walsh. Key 
players included sophomore 
Dan Gold, who was upped to 
varsity mid-season. The fresh- 
man team played very well to 
complete its season with an 
impressive record of 15-3. The 
team was led by captains Chris 
McCarthy, Jason Betley, and 
Brendan Soar.

Women's Basketball

The varsity girls bas- 
ketball team had a great sea- 
son this year finishing with an 
impressive record. The team 
lost seven games but won four- 
teen, placing them 3rd in West- 
ern Mass going into the WMass 
tournament. Unlike last year, 
the team had three co-captains 
who led them through a great 
season. Seniors, Bridget 
Dullea, Margaret McKenna, 
and Jessica Farmer pulled the 
team together for a great sea- 
son. Team work could be re- 
sponsible for the improvement 

over last year's team. The team 
made it to the play-offs in mid- 
season as opposed to last year 
berth at the end of the season. 
Also having a great 
season was the girls Junior 
Varsity basketball team. They 
finished the season with a per- 
fect record. The team worked 
well together, led by an excel- 
lent coaching staff and in a 
change from past years had no 
student captains. Also having 
a great season was the fresh- 
men team who had a success- 
ful first season at LHS. Con- 
fratulations to all of the girl's 
asketball teams here at LHS 
for amazing seasons!!

Men's Swimming 

by Sydney Leavens 

For the LHS men's 
swimteam, this season was 
supposed to be a rebuilding 
year. Many leading competi- 
tors had graduated, and there 
was not a single senior on the 
team. However, due to the 
hard work of some very tal- 
ented underclassmen and the 
leadership of team captains 
juniors Adam Szafran, Jess Hill 
and Mike Russo, the team sur- 
prised even itself. The boys 
capped off their impressive 
season record of 11-3 with a 




second place finish at Western 
Mass. "The team exceeded my 
expectations," said Coach 
Mandell, "[and its] Western 
Mass performance was an eye 
opener to other teams." 

Key swimmers were 
juniors Szafran, Russo, and 
Brett Fagin, sophomores Aaron 
Mayausky, and Mark 
Kolonowski and freshman 
Travis Hill, all of whom quali- 
fied for States competition. 

The strong diving of 
freshman Lee Cotton often 
helped to determine close 
meets in Longmeadow's favor. 

Juniors Brett Fagin, Mike Russo, Mike 
Davidow, and sophomore Mark 
Kolonowski stop to pose for the cam-

Women's Swimming 

by Sydney Leavens 

The women's swim 
team ended its season strongly 
with a season record of 9-5 and 
a sixth place finish at Western 
Mass. Under the leadership of 
senior captains Katie Hennessy 
and Emily Sturgis, the team 
beat strong long-time rivals. 
Said Coach Mandell of the sea- 
son, "The team lost some strong 
seniors but we always seem to 
somehow get by, living up to 
our reputation as the team to 
beat." This was especially true 
at WMass, where almost every 

swimmer shaved seconds off 
her seed time in every race. 

Some key swimmers 
were seniors Hennessy, and 
Leah Halsey, junior Jill Varley, 
and sophomores Kim Sullivan, 
Candice Olszewski, and Katie 
Spinelli, all of whom qualified 
for States competition. 

Crucial to the 
women's success was the 
Longmeadow Women's div- 
ing program, undoubtedly the 
strongest in Western Mass. 
Under the the leadership of 
senior captains Oni Matule- 
wicz and Signe Dalquist, div- 
ing clinched many victories for 
the team. Dalquist set the 6- 
dive school record of 220.7 
points at a home meet against 
Cathedral and the 11-dive 
school record of 391.95 points 
at WMass.

Wrestling is often said 
to be one of the toughest of all 
winter sports, and with good 
cause. Participants must en- 
dure hours of grueling condi- 
tioning, push themselves to the 
limits in mental and physical 
strength, and often diet as well 
to qualify for low weight 
classes. This year's Long- 
meadow wrestlers endured the 
pain and sacrifices and 
emerged as some of the stron- 
gest competitors in WMass.

of captains seniors Eli Zimmer,

Tim Dubay, Ken Sheffield, and 
Mark Zimring and junior Mike 
McCarthy, the team thrived. 
One of the highlights of the 
season was the team's resound- 
ing win against Agawam at 
home by around 30 points. 

Key contributors in- 
cluded Dubay, who finished 
the season first in his weight 
class (171) and was voted most 
valuable wrestler in Western 
Mass, Zimmer, who was third 
in Western Mass in his class 
(189) and McCarthy, who also 
finished third in WMass in the 
112 weight class. 

Senior Dave Martens applies a lot of 
pressure to his opponent's head; his

year became Longmeadow's

goals, 83 assists and 1 72 points. 
Their skill and determination 
have made Longmeadow High

"Yesterday a child came out to wonder 

Caught a dragonfly inside a jar 

Fearful when the sky was full of thunder 

And tearful at the falling of the star 

Then the child moved ten times around the seasons 

Skated over ten clear frozen streams 

Words like, "when you're older" must appease him 

When promises of someday make his dreams 

And the seasons, they go round and round 
And the painted ponies go up and down 

We're captive on the carousel of time 

We can't return we can only look behind 

From where we came 

And go round and round and round 

In the circle game. "

Once Upon a Time 


andAways. . . 

Once upon a time I ventured into an unknown classroom at LHS for the first 
time. I nervously turned around to see a friendly-looking Indian boy sitting behind 
me. "Hi, my name is Swaroop." Little did I know that this introduction would be 
the start of four years of friendship. Working on the yearbook with you, Swaroop, 
was only a very minute part of our time together. And although I got frustrated at 
times, there was never any doubt in my mind that we would put out a great book. 
That is what happens, you see, when two friends work hard at perfecting some- 
thing: you get something wonderful. 

IK Love, Evelyn 

Well Ev, we've truly seen it all, my friend: "La Caperucita Roja," the Spot, 
Starlight Express, the Reject Shop, "Sinner Man," the Senior Class Play, its conse- 
quences, pies, Puntos quizzes, yearbook, yearbook, yearbook... Good God(s)! 
How could I have dealt with the madness and hilarity that these four years have 
been without you analyzing and laughing at it all along with me? True, at times 
you, being the weirdo you are, have added to the madness. . .and I wholehearted ly 
appreciate it! You've been the greatest "Co" and friend. Thank you. 

Always, Swaroop 

Thank you, Class of 1998!

A Bronco Day and an Ehv, 
Day: Super Bowl XXXII. 

Britain and the world bid farewell to Diana, 
Princess of Wales, on a sparkling September 
morning with a grand tribute rich in pagentry. 
Since her death in a car crash in Paris and a 
week before, the country had witnessed an 
astonishing outpouring of grief that forced a 
repentant monarchy to join in the kind of full 
celebration of Diana's life that the millions of 
people who flooded into London demanded.

Despite comparisons with earlier 
groups like Menudo and New 
Kids on the Block, the Spice Girls 
have jumped into superstardom, 
grabbing the adoration that 
comes with overnight worldwide 
fame. With only one album to 
their credit, the five young 
women took the world by storm 
with their saucy antics and innu- 
merable shouts of "Girl Power."

Mother Teresa was among the most well-known 
and highly respected women in the world in the 
later half of the twentieth century. She dedicated 
her life to helping the poor, the sick and the dying 
around the world, particularly those in India. 
Her selfless work with the needy brought her 
much acclaim and many awards, including the 
Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. She died at the age of 
87 on September 5, 1997 of heart failure at her 
convent in Calcutta. 

The Dave Matthews 
Band has demon- 
strated over the course 
of three albums and 
several years of exten- 
sive touring that it has 
staying power on the 
record charts. Com- 
bining the elements of 
rock, jazz, funk, folk 
and world beat, the 
group is soulful and 
subtle in its harmonies 
and rhythms.

The Verve Pipe is 
an incredible rock/ 
band whose first 
single, "Photo- 
graph," became a 
fairly big hit. But its 
success cannot be 
compared to their 
latest single, "The 
Freshman." That 
song enjoyed time at 
Number ONe on the 
Billboard chart. Te 
Verve Pipe carved 
their own niche in 
the world.

Thus, we've already written the first chapter oft le ink has not yet dried, 

the memories are still fresh. Yet even as the pa* c - fthis book fray and yellow with 
age, its contents will not fade away from our minds. Indeed, the year nineteen hundred 
and ninety-eight was not "just another year ." 


Was it "just another year" when our class finally came together, breaking down 
the barriers between cliques and friendship circles? Once upon a time, we 
entered Longmeadow High School's halls as scared, bewildered, and scattered freshmen. 
This year, we leave united as a class of power, a class with a voice. Is it every year that 
the wonders of America Online help to organize a 'wildly successful "Senior Skip Day" 
and a "C-Block Walkout" in support of Dr. Murphy? This wasn't "just another year" 
and we certainly aren't "just another class." 

Now, as we face leaving the familiarity of cozy and comfortable Longmeadow, we 
reflect on how these four years will affect our future. Like the introduction of any 
fairy tale, our experiences together will serve as the foundation for all that is yet to occur. 

Will we lead fain/ tale lives in a fantasy -world? Unfortunately, no. Yet we will 
face reality with the optimism and hope that our story books brought us when 
we were little. And perhaps, using all that 'we've gained during our time together at 
Longmeadow High School, we win live happily ever after.

Our thanks to you, the reader of Once Upon a Time, the 
42nd volume and 1 998 edition of the Longmeadow High School 
Masacksic, for your interest in our work and for recognizing 
that this book's captions and quotes are all in good-natured fun. 

Without a doubt, this year's staff was one of the most 
enthusiastic, interesting, committed, and hilarious groups ever 
assembled at LHS. Jt was truly an honor to be able to work with 
such determined workers, and such great friends. We cannot 
express how thankful we are to them for all that they've done for 
us. We did it! 

Special thanks to our Jostens' Representative, Matt 
Fenn. Even when confronted with two spasmatic and melodra- 
matic editors bemoaning one disasterous yearbook crisis or 
another, he alzvays kept his cool and proved to be our voice of 
reason— with a smile, of course. 

And finally, we thank Mr. Leblanc. We have observed 
him in awe— how can one man be so dedicated to an after-school 
activity? He invested so much of his time, money, and spirit into 
our endeavor. And on top of that, he has kept his sanity (even 
through all of the missed deadlines, caption wars, and missing 
zip disks)! Most of all, we thank Rogfor being a friend and an 
inspiration for us to keep chugging along even when we were fed 
up with it all. We couldn't have done it without him.
